Easy to Make Heart Shaped Pizzas
You can customize these heart shaped pizzas with any of your favorite pizza toppings. These were made with a simple pepperoni and cheese topping because those are our favorites.
Well, those are the favorite toppings for the kids. I like my pizzas with pepperoni, black olives, and mushrooms.
We have a little one that visits frequently and her favorite pizza is plain cheese. She doesn’t care for any other toppings so we make her a mini cheese heart pizza. She also likes her pizzas a little smaller.

Mini Kid Friendly Heart Pizzas
These heart pizzas make a great snack for the kids. We love making them on Valentine’s Day and the kids would often want them for school parties.
They were always a hit and they are super easy to make! It was so funny because the kids would think we did some type of magic to make them heart shaped.
I still get a chuckle out of the adorable reactions and the look on their faces when they would see the pizzas.
- 1 tube of refrigerated pizza dough (if you have a favorite dough recipe, you can use that too!)
- 1 cup of pizza sauce (any will do)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 15 or so pepperoni slices
- Heart-shaped cookie cutters
How to make the min pizzas shaped like hearts:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out the pizza dough, evenly, Use the heart cookie cutters to cut out heart-shaped pieces of dough. Then, place the heart-shaped dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet. I love parchment paper because it helps avoid messes and makes it easy to get things off the pan.
Spread the pizza sauce on the dough hearts, sprinkle with cheese, add a pepperoni piece or two to the pizza. If you want to add other toppings, do so now.
For extra fun: You can make the pepperoni into the shape of a heart (like we did above). Just use kitchen scissors (or a knife) to cut the top so it is in the shape of a heart.
Bake the mini heart shaped pizzas for 10-15 minutes. You will want the cheese to be melted and the crust a golden brown color.
That’s it! It’s so easy that you can whip these snacks up in no time and show some love to those in your family.
